New Webinars Focus on Overcoming Eating Disorders

Publication Date: Mar 03, 2023

Eating disorders are serious, possibly fatal illnesses that can affect both a person's physical and mental health. Over 30 million people in the US struggle with disordered eating. Many of those affected — including males, people of color, and individuals in larger bodies — remain undiagnosed and do not receive the clinical care they need. It is important that clinical providers and community leaders be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of eating disorders to get more individuals the support they need and help reduce the stigma around eating disorders.

For this purpose, the Central East MHTTC continues its collaboration with Rock Recovery to educate and raise awareness about these complex conditions. Rock Recovery is a DC Metro area-based nonprofit that supports the journey to freedom from disordered eating through affordable clinical recovery and community empowerment programs.

In observance of Eating Disorders Awareness Week (February 27 – March 5, 2023), we launched the first of three 90-minute webinars about this mental health issue.
